RobertsonWilliamWILLIAM G. ROBERTSON JR. (1913-2007) was a generous supporter of Hopkins dating back to 1951. He was a past president of Henry Adams Inc., a mechanical and electrical engineering firm that was involved in the design of many of the buildings on the East Baltimore campus. Mr. Robertson became particularly interested in the School of Public Health in the 1970s as a volunteer with Planned Parenthood.

This professorship was created to support the school’s pioneering research and outreach programs in world population, an area of study scientists believe to be vital in the 21st century and an area of particular concern to Mr. Robertson.
